      The small city of Newburgh, NY was once called "The Best All-American City" in 1952. It boasts the largest historic district in the United States, glorious Hudson River views around every corner, and a stunning array of historical Victorian architecture. Almost 50 years later, it has slid to NY state's "Most Violent City" status. Drugs and crime run rampant. Some people blame past events, others focus on the recent administration, during which $380,000 was wire transferred to friends of the mayor. Bumper stickers reading "Honest Mayor Wanted: Apply Newburgh, NY" started popping up around the city. An underground website was started, attacking both the politics and personal issues. The heated political climate led to a firey campaign for mayor in 2003. The film follows the four candidates running for mayor, as well as some of the higher profile citizens as they 'fight' for change. The film climaxes with the selection of the city's new mayor, and the open-ended question of weather or not this Hudson River city will finally be saved.

                      Electric Purgatory is a documentary that examines the struggles of black rock musicians and the industry's ambivalence towards them. Director Raymond Gayle spent the better part of a year traveling around the United States interviewing many of Black Rock's elite including Fishbone, Vernon Reid, Adam Falcon, Jimi Hazel and Cody Chesnutt. Distinguished journalists such as Flip Barnes, Darrell McNeil, Charlie Braxton, and Greg Tate, share their opinions and insight on the dilemma facing these artists. The film will explore the origins of the Black Rock Coalition and its relevance in the music industry. The project will also take a look at the stigma Black Rock musicians face in the Black community and more importantly how to bring the Black audiences back into the fold.
